Three Vermont Army National Guard soldiers who were injured in Iraq will be awarded purple hearts on Friday. Specialist Ross Holsopple of Winooski, Sergeant Michael Dube of Eden Mills and Sergeant Matthew Bedia of Washington will be honored at a ceremony at Camp Johnson in Colchester.

The three men were part of the 186th Field Artillery Battalion that was sent to Iraq in April. They were serving on convoy security and escort missions when they were injured.
